Happy Christmas from the Donkeys

This year I was determined to resist the temptation to put Santa hats on the donkeys and do the same old clichéd line-up. I thought we might instead do a photo-shoot with the donkeys on a pre-Christmas night out in a Benidorm disco. However, the donkeys simply didn’t think it would look cool arriving at a disco in a horse box. So here is the same old clichéd line-up of donkeys in Santa hats. HAPPY CHRISTMAS!

Bye bye donkeys. My friend Carl is looking after the donkeys for the next few days.

Update 6.30 pm Monday 22nd December

Now on the boat to Ibiza, from where the blog will be updated over the next few days. Thanks for comments from Alys, Lunar4teddy, and Tuppence: I haven’t heard from you for years 2d!  Hope you are well. (Pity about the demise of the Staffroom.) Happy Christmas all.

Arriving in Ibiza, cold deserted and unwelcoming in winter. Perfect.

About Gareth Thomas

A fairly mixed career starting as an aircraft technician and later Franciscan friar eventually led into secondary school teaching. I settled in Spain where I teach Geography part-time and spend the rest of my time looking after the needs of four donkeys in a remote location in the mountains in the Costa Blanca. I have two blogs: a geography blog and a donkey blog.

    Christmas wouldn’t be the same without the Donks in all their merriment! I see they have hung up their lemon baubles! The Donks definitely need new wellies for Christmas… in fact looking at the state of the field, they could all do with two pairs each! Happy Christmas everybody! xxx
